Having a Baby at Regional Medical Center
Regional's all new Women and Children's Center provides large private rooms that allow mothers and their partners/family members to experience the miracle of childbirth in a beautiful, comfortable, nurturing environment. Our LDRP rooms, (Labor, Delivery, Recovery, Post-partum) allow mothers to stay in 1 room throughout the entire birthing process.
A special celebratory dinner is prepared for parents after the birth of their baby. Every time a baby is born at Regional, a Brahms lullaby is played overhead throughout the hospital to signify and celebrate the birth of a child.
Providing Quality Care Every Step of the Way
We understand women and children's health go hand in hand. That's why we are committed to providing first-class care for women and children at all stages of life. Whether you are preparing for pregnancy, expecting your first child or seeking care for your children, our highly-skilled medical team of obstetricians, pediatricians, family practitioners, perinatologists (take care of the baby prior to the birth), neonatologists (take care of the baby after the birth), nurses, therapists and support staff combine their expertise and compassion to create a care team you can count on.
The Family Birthing Center
Bringing children into the world is a wonderful experience; there are many choices to make. At Regional Medical Center of San Jose, we aim to educate expectant mothers and their families to make the entire process the joyful experience it should be.
Regional has put together a complete birthing package that helps to educate and prepare all members of the family. We invite you to join us in our many classes (listed on our online calendar) designed especially for expectant mothers and their loved ones.
Each year, Regional's Family Birthing Center welcomes hundreds of children into the world. The Center is designed to provide care and comfort to satisfy every need. Six private birthing suites offer a comfortable and accommodating setting during your stay at Regional. Family and friends are welcome to take part in the birthing experience and newborn bonding is encouraged from the very beginning. You may begin caring for your baby right away, as accommodations are available to allow mother and baby to stay together throughout their visit. Two surgical suites are available for patients requiring Cesarean births, and all newborns are screened for metabolic disorders and jaundice.
